Walled town, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

The Quenya words for walled town are opelë (walled house or village, town) and tirios (a town with walls and towers).

The Sindarin word for walled town is gobel (walled house or village, town).

These words can apply to a walled village, as well as a walled town. There are other words which seem more for cities.
